Denalou, I'm really glad you are using the Day threads. I like knowing that they are helpful. I have not gone over there in a long time.

I keep saying I am going to run back through the whole first six weeks of Beck to jump-start my progress, but I don't see to do it!!! I gotta get back that Beck feeling!!!

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Welcome to the team emoticon
I am relatively new here too, but everyone is so helpful, kind and encouraging. You're gonna really love it! I think Judi mentioned the "Day" threads. I have been finding them very helpful as I read each day in the book. Also, use the daily check in to say howdy!

I do have two siblings who are reading screen instead of books! I think it is very strange! (But I was using a Silent 700 computer terminal with paper scrolling out of the top ten years after everyone switched to screens, so I have trouble with "change") ha ha

Yeah you're right. People still like to read pages and not computer screens. At least for now.

Good advice! I remember a song from the musical Barnum called "One Brick At A Time" which was very fun to hear and uplifting and I used to do my exercises to it. I'll have to find that music. Ha ha! I think I know why I don't know where it is. It was a "record" - do any of you remember what a record is???

Don't get discouraged yet. i've been on SP as well. I think this is my 4th or 5th time I've started this. now I've got the Beck diet book and workbook. Even then, I still struggle with trying to balance all that is in my life.

Don't give up hope. A house gets made a brick at a time. You'll get it.

Wow, Judi. Thank you so much for your input and kind reply. I already sense that this group is going to be filled with the support I'm looking for.

I do live in the Bay Area and work near Stanford, in fact. I'm glad you love the area here -- I can't complain. It's my favorite place to live. :-)

Welcome! I went and read your page to get to know you a little better. Your weight is right around where I started. I have been in a pretty stuck place for a few months, but I am happy to say that using the Beck approach and support from this team on Spark, I lost around 40 pounds (depending on where you put the starting weight) and I have kept it off.

I started over and over and I never got anywhere, so what was different this time? It isn't a simple answer, but it has to do with the Beck approach of changing behaviors little by little, learning not to look for perfection, giving ourselves credit when we do something that supports our goals, jumping right back on track when we do something that does not support our goals. So many little things.

This team is the best ever!!!! I really hope that you will find the support here that you are looking for. (Also, I love the Bay area. Do you still live there? My kids both went to Stanford so we visited a lot. And my husband and I always loved San Francisco even before we met. I'm in the Chicago area.)

So, good luck getting going on this! Ask for help! Our team members hang around on the Daily Checkin. We also have the Coaching Corner for asking about things that need some brain power! or some accountability.

There are also threads for each Beck Day but I am not real sure what is over on those. But it could be a way to connect with 'people' who have been at that stage at different times but they already wrote their thoughts.

Hey everyone. I'm new to this team, but definitely not new to SP. I've restarted today -- probably my fourth restart. I find that I am motivated for about two weeks or so, then I get overwhelmed or tempted, and I fall off the wagon and it takes me even longer to get back on again!

I have read the Beck Diet Solution, and have the audiobook and workbook as well. I appreciate the idea that it's not a "diet" -- it's cognitive behavior therapy. I definitely need to change my behaviors, that's for sure!

I'll be honest and say I really, really need support. I'm kind of at the end of my rope in regards to weight loss. I'm hoping this team will help with that.
